Translation

Nor would he instruct you to take angels and prophets for Lords and patrons. What! would he bid you to unbelief after ye have bowed your will (To Allah in Islam)?

Tafsir

He would never order you (read laa ya'murukum, to denote a new clause, meaning 'God [would not order you]'; or if read laa ya'murakum, it would be a supplement to yaqoola, 'he should say', meaning '[it belongs not that.] a mortal [should order you]'); to take the angels and the prophets as lords, in the way that the Sabaeans have taken the angels, the Jews, Ezra, and the Christians, Jesus. Would He order you to disbelieve, after you have submitted? He would not do this.
